Scriven Arts Colony Presents Silent Movies


On Friday, August 14 at 7 p.m., pianist Jeff Rapsis will play a live soundtrack to two silent films, both Buster Keaton classics--Sherlock Jr. (1924; 40 minutes) and Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928; 70 minutes)--at the Scriven Arts Colony in Gilmanton, NH. Rapsis is co-founder and associate publisher of The Hippo, New Hampshire’s weekly journal covering the arts, entertainment, food, culture, and lifestyle. .


The Scriven Arts Colony was launched in 2015 to host sporadic cultural events in a circa 1790 barn in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. The Colony is located at 452 NH Route 140 in Gilmanton. It is named in honor of Jane Scriven Cumming (1904-1998), a publicist, interior decorator, and bon vivant best remembered as the author of the 1993 classic, Gilmanton Summers, still in print and available through The Gilmanton Historical Society. The Colony is the brainchild of Jane’s grandson, Bill Donahue, a Gilmanton journalist who has written for The New York Times Magazine, among other publications.

Gilmanton Old Home Day has something for everyone. There is the children’s activities including a puppet show with Lindsay and her Puppet Pals, tables for local community groups and craftspeople, antique car show, live music with the Parker Hill Road Band and the highlight is the Bean Hole Dinner and don’t forget those pies. Old Home Day is on Saturday the 15th of August


The Art Show has been a feature of the event and has grown over the years. Last year the show featured 22 artists and over 60 works from paintings, multi-media, photography, and sculpture. The majority of visitors viewed the show and were very impressed by the talent we are fortunate to have in Gilmanton and the surrounding communities. In addition to first and second prize awards the ‘peoples’ choice’ award is chosen by the viewers themselves, kids included, who last year favored a photo of a hawk. The art show is set-up gallery style in the undercroft of the Church, the location allows for a quiet time from the multiple outdoor Old Home Day activities happening on the beautiful Smith Meeting House grounds. 


Registration is open to all and we encourage you to join the show with your work by contacting Betty Mitchell- [email protected] or 387-1807. Registration closes Wednesday August 12th.
